1998 Oldsmobile Silhouette GS 4dr Minivan

Review

We have found this a very frustrating vehicle to own. The engine and drive train have been very good but we have had so many other problems that we wish we had made a different choice. Where to start... the power sliding door is useless. First it would not close unless you held it shut, now it doesn't work at all and has become a very heavy manual door. Numerous trips to the shop have not helped. The check engine light kept coming on for several months but that appears to be fixed now (finally). The temperature senser clearly doesn't work, the cup holders are useless, the rubber stripping falls off. We regret not paying the extra money for the Toyota. Get the extended warranty.

Best Features

Good engine, good traction, lots of room, generally feels solid.

Worst Features

Extremely poor fit and finish, terrible sliding door, useless cup holders. Very poor quality control. Has cost us countless lost hours at the repair shop.
